Best cheeseburgers in Myrtle Beach

The cheeseburger has become a staple of American cuisine, available in seconds from a drive-through window or in the most upscale of restaurants with exotic beef or other meats.

Jimmy Buffet made the dining room staple famous with his “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” which happens to be on our list to you.

Although narrowing down the plethora of amazing places to sink your teeth into a cheeseburger along the Grand Strand is a nearly impossible task, any restaurant on this list should be a can’t-miss gem for any who visit Myrtle Beach or live here alike.

So, get out and enjoy an affordable, mouth-watering cheeseburger and fries … and tell them sent you.

River City Cafe


There are a so many juicy, delicious burgers to choose from in a variety of flavors. From classical to pizza burgers to cheesesteak burgers to mushroom and Swiss, the whole family can find beef between bun that is sure to satisfy. Our favorite is the OMG burger that is served with grilled cheese sandwiches on Texas Toast as buns. Besides the Barefoot Landing location, there are also six other locations along the Grand Strand.

Longbeard’s Bar & Grill

Enjoy a traditional burger, or a mountain of meat from elk, buffalo and turkey for a flavor sensation you’re not soon to forget. Try all 3 in slider form as an appetizer.

5040 Carolina Forest Blvd, Myrtle Beach; (843) 903-2905

Again, there is a wealth of places to enjoy a delicious burger along the Grand Strand, these simply stand just a bit above. Even with all the great cheeseburger options in Myrtle Beach, we must recommend that you save room for South Carolina barbecue  and freshly caught seafood. Both are practically required meals to try before you leave the beautiful South Carolina coast.
